Shipped a surfboard

The airlines are very difficult to use for taking surfboards on trips. Its expensive and they dammage them. In my case my lonboard was to big to put on a plane anyway. It was also too big for fedex or UPS. Its only 9'2" which isnt that big for a longboard. Uship enabled me to find a carrier who gave me personal service and a great price. The board was delivered in perfect condition with no hassles ...

To AK in December!

Adamantine Spine Moving (The name has a story.) took my piano to my grandson in AK in Dec driving the Alcan!! Could stop the story there, it was so unique. Some delays due to weather, holiday and eq problems but a wonderful learning experience for them and me. I enjoyed the vicarious drive! The men could not have been nicer. Called me and family with updates. My AK family had banana bread an ...

Telephone pole delivered....

Well, I use a little literary license in the title. The actual item I have been waiting to be moved the short 300 miles from Ft. Worth to Lubbock, is actually a painting of a telephone pole. A painting just large enough not to fit in any standard car or SUV and painted with thick acrylic paint that cant be rolled or removed from the frame without damage. Each trip I took to Ft Worth I would c ...

Great first-time shipping experience

I had a 400-500 lb piano to be moved from California to an upstairs apartment in Nevada. Best Deal Moving Co. offered to move it for $400 and worked diligently to work with my needs. My husband and I had set to meet them in CA, drop off some Christmas gifts to our family and get home to receive the piano in NV. Unfortunately, we ended up missing our flight. In the morning I called Best D ...

Trustworthy and successful transportation of painting

I was shipping a 6' x 6' painting I created.  Obviously, I was apprehensive and meticulous about who I selected.  Based on positive feedback, I chose Lowell and Cary, aka "lakerats."  The price was unbeatable and they helped load it onto the truck and move it into my apartment.  I would definitely recommend using them. 

wow-i'm impressed

I bought a extra large pipe organ that stands over 8 ft tall and weighs over 400 pounds within a couple of hours after putting my request in uship.com---KNIGHT MOVES TRANSPORT-- quoted a price that was more than fair. Within 2 days it was at my house with the owner/operater of KNIGHT MOVES TRANSPORT helping carry this extreamly heavy antique in the house.As a first time user of uship i am exstream ...

My 1977 Zenith console TV

For over a year and a half I have been searching for a replacement for my 1977 Zenith console TV, which was nearing the loss of its last pixel.  It was a depressingly fruitless search, as the company discontinued the newest model in March 2005.  They were as scarce as hen's teeth as we farmers would say - chickens don't HAVE teeth.  I really dislike the new style ...

The pool table was my dad's.  I planned on moving it to my home in AZ for my children.   The table was handled with care and delivered as promised.

Womderful service delivering my Fathers dresser

Furniture Man was wonderful and carefully packed my Dad's antique dresser.  The dresser meant a lot to me as he recently  passed away and this was the only thing I wanted from his estate.  It belonged to my great Grandmother and Dad was 91 whe he died.  So transporting this was was an important issue.  And the price was great!! Tommy did a great job and I would highly recc ...

Tinman Sir Lancelot "slept" in the truck cab

Sir Lancelot is a large tin knight that was purchased in Florida while our friends, the Knights, were on vacation in 2005.  The original plans to get him to New Hampshire did not work out and he stayed on the porch for over a year.  He was too large to ship via the USPS, FedEx or UPS.  I finally found UShip and requested bids to get him home.  The first bids were much more ...

Fabulous Transaction!!

I am a Stay-at-Home Mom, but I still have to contribute some income to the household in order to continue staying at home with my two wonderful little boys!  I have been selling items on eBay to accomplish this goal.  I recently was able to acquire a new hot tub / spa cover from a store closing inventory liquidation that I sold on eBay.  These things aren't heavy at all, just bulky. ...

Tale of the Blues Brothers

My family wouldn't own the Blues Brothers today if not for uShip.  The seller of the items stated "Pick Up Only" in his ad.  The item was located in Murietta, CA and we live in Santa Maria, CA (400 miles to the North).  I had no way of getting to Murietta in a large enough vehicle to transport both statues, which stand 6' tall and weigh 50-75lbs.  However, the seller did agree ...

Antique Cherry Secretary - from Wisconsin to North Carolina.

My mother in law passed away a while back and one of the pieces she left me was an Antique Cherry Secretary.  I shipped it to my son in North Carolina - upon receiving it he called and told me it brought back memories of his childhood - he could see it at Grandma's house!!  Thanks for handling childhood memories with care!

Antique Pump Organs

Mark and Steve are extremely courteous. They really do care for the items they are shipping as if they were there own. My shipment was five antique pump organs. Each one was wrapped with multiple furniture pads and plastic wrap. They were so careful as they unloaded each one. I would definately recommend them to anyone who needs a trustworthy shipper. They were right on time and we were alwa ...

Good experience shipping old piano in Tampa

Big Boyz Moving Company did a good job moving an old piano from a friend's house in Seminole Heights to my home in New Tampa. They arrived early and were courteous and polite to my friend. Carried the piano so as not to damage the floor or the wheels. They phoned before they got to his house and phoned again to let me know they were on the way to my house. Were courteous and polite to me too and c ...

My 1st time....

First time using Uship the ebay seller suggested it  - the process went smoothly.  I like the way it used Ebay to pull up the listing and picture - so that way they would know what / where being shipped from / to.   plus they get a look at our Ebay feedback if they like to see if we are a customer that they would like to deal with too!

Big TV

Jim shipped my 250 lb.  high-end tube television SAFELY at a fantastic price: about 400 dollars less than the closest competitor.  He also helped me situate it in house before departing.  


My parents are moving out of their house into a retirement facility, and could not take their player piano with them.  The piano is the only thing left from my Grandmother, and I grew up playing it with my family, so I wanted my children to have the same experience.  However, my parents live in St. Louis and I live near New York City, and we had no way to get the piano her ...

On time, Great move, thank you Craig!

Professional service with moving a Grandfather Clock.

Yesterday I recieved an antique Grandfather clock that I purchased online. Once I completed the purchase I then had to make the decision about how I would get the clock to my home. The seller was located about four and a half hours away, which was not too far away to drive and pick it up myself, but I just did not have the time. I found U ship and asked for some bids to transport the clock. Within ...

I bought a spa capsule on e bay, I hate buying large things on there because it is so stressful to find a shipper and keep the price low. Then I found this page and it has saved me!!
